vibration

G'Day Fellas, Am doing my head in here, we live on gravel roads and for most parts put up with a shuddering car but on bitumn she was still vibrating. So have replaced ball joints (upper/lower) had a wheel alignment including camber and caster.
Steering (tie rod ends)all done. Uni joints replaced. Still vibrating at just over 80K's worse at 90K's seems to reduce marginally at 100K's.

UC TORANA

Hi gentlemen,

Looking to buy wheels for my UC torana - 15 x 8" for the rear and 15 x 7" for the front.
The seller says they have 4-1/2" backspace. Will these fit and fill the guards out or is it the wrong size.

Thanks dudes, Dusty

Oil in Air Fileter - 85 Rodeo

Hey guys,

Sorry for the slightly off topic post (it is a holden and has chrome bumpers so I guess technically it is still an old holden...)

I have an 85 Rodeo that seems to have excessive crankcase pressure. I am getting oil in the air filter, and occasionally the dipstick will blow out enough to let oil splash out the dipstick hole.

It is not doing this when the engine is not under load, so it is a bit hard to pinpoint exactly what is happening.

Seat covers?

Anyone used these things?

http://www.ebay.com....

Are they any good? Do they perfect fit or move around? What about appearance?

Not cheap.
